“We’ve got a challenging game at the weekend so I don’t really want to look too far ahead of that, but with the players we have got in the squad, we should be higher than where we are.

“I think everyone knows all around the world what Liverpool means to me but my focus is very much on Aston Villa. I’ve said that I am all-in and I can promise our supporters that that’s the case.

“I think first and foremost it’s an extremely proud moment from a personal point of you, it’s a real honour to be the manager of this football club.”
